Buspar - increases or decreases serotonin?

Posted by ZeeZee on November 11, 2002, at 18:13:19

I had my first session with a new PDoc today, and really like her. It seems that at week 6, my use of SJW is in fact working and I'm experiencing a decrease in my panic disorder/agoraphobia symptoms (without side effects). She's is sensitive to the fact that SSRI's increase my level of anxiety and doesn't want to upset what progress I've made or am making at this time. However, she told me that the SJW is increasing the availability of serotonin, but cannot be taken in high enough doses to fully do the trick. Rather than switch me all together she asked I try a low dose of Buspar, because it can be taken with the SJW and will help to increase the availablity of serotonin as well. What I don't understand is I thought Buspar decreases serotonin. Anyone out there able to explain this to me.
